Elongated Apatite crystals the majority of which have grown in a parallel orientation giving the appearance of one larger crystal. The color ranges from a medium blue to blue violet to bright purple (mostly on the bottom). The color is a bit variable due to the light source being more blue under a CFL and sunlight and more purple under an overhead fluorescent and incandescent. The Apatite has grown on white colored Albite. There is also present some black colored unidentified material.

Condition: Good

Flaws: Some of the subcrystals are not terminated.
